The Bradley County Pink Tomato Festival, one of the oldest continuous running festivals in the state, is celebrating its diamond anniversary.

What began as a one-day event in 1956 has grown to a week-long event with a golf tournament, baseball tournament, talent contest, the All Tomato Luncheon, a parade, “big name” entertainment, beauty pageants, a steak cook-off, and lots of other events and contests, including the tomato eating contest.

The entertainment for the 2016 Pink Tomato Festival will be John Anderson, Ward Davis, Craig Wayne Boyd, Stone Aces, David Adam Byrnes, Ben Coulter, DJ Jam A Lot and the Hispanic DJ.
